The Power of Pause

I chose to use the Power of Pause for my action research project. I feel like this tool was a great success in my classroom and made a tremendous impact on my students. They have grown and developed so well in their ability to stop and think about their responses and can reason with one another.  I had students that were having deep discussions about the topics we have covered. They are able to not only answer but after reflecting on other answers they reason with one another. When I started this project, I was concerned with how it would look in my Kindergarten class. One of the biggest concerns was how I was going to train them to pause when I would ask them a question. They are eager to learn at their age and want to make you proud. I am confident that I will continue to implement the power of pause as well as many other tools I have learned throughout our Deeper Learning training.
